My favorite restaurant at The Orleans. We were there for 5 days for JAMZ Nationals. The kids didn’t care for the menu though...wish there was a kids menu. Other than that, the crawfish & crab legs were delicious though! The soup was absolutely amazing!

Fantastic food and service. They sat us exactly where we requested. This place is a must when we visit Vegas.

First I have frequented this place for quite a while. The food is really amazing. However taking my wife there on Valentine’s Day for oysters salmon and other’s, we as always had an amazing experience with the manager on duty. She is always amazing. Our issue on Valentine’s Day which has sealed the deal not to return was While eating the bread where they have the oil and vinegar mixture we were indulging in it. My wife pointed and asked what is that? How did the vinegar bottle were fruit flies so God knows how many pieces were consumed. The failure was that there was absolutely zero guest recovery attempt when brought to managements attention. Very sad because it makes you wonder as a manager I would have been in shock. That makes me feel that despite of my previous visits this is a norm

Good authentic seafood dishes, including fresh oysters. Simple decor, not at all fancy. Friendly service. Not upscale, but good value. Reasonable prices, large portions.

Great for Cajun food! The clams and gumbo were wonderful. Food is filled with spice.

The oysters were ok? The server was very nice but our beer was really flat and the glasses smelled funny? I thought the oysters were over priced and not very good however the chowder was delicious!

We were transferred from the California Hotel to Orleans due to a water problem??? My wife wasn't very happy as she prefers staying at the "Cal" since it is so convenient to visit other casinos , restaurants and viewing the Fremont show. I was hungry for some fresh seafood and remembered the fine seafood we ate here a few years ago, especially the clam chowder, clams and oysters on a half shell and the wonderful seafood salad. Mrs ordered soup and salad, daughter shrimp scampi w/pasta, and I ordered the pound of king crab ($29). Well, I was disappointed since the crab was split lengthwise, was dry and very difficult to eat...the clam chowder though was delicious. Mrs enjoyed the soup as well, but the bread on the sandwich was hard and tasteless, same with the shrimp. Sometimes it's best to order the same item you enjoyed in the past rather than try something new. New time (?) I order the chowder, oysters/clams on a half shell and the seafood salad.
